ESE acts as the voice of its members on the issues that matter to them. We actively engage in advocacy, encouraging government organisations to better support the needs of our members.
Through the 50 National Societies involved with the ESE Council of Affiliated Societies (ECAS) and our partnership with specialist endocrine societies, ESE and its partners jointly represent a community of over 20,000 European endocrinologists. These partnerships and collaborations help us identify opportunities, challenges and developments so we can advocate for the endocrine community in the most effective way. Read more about our key outreach activities below.
Find out more about our current policy and advocacy priorities, covering topics such as endocrine-disrupting chemicals, cancer and COVID-19.
ESE is an active advocate for the endocrine community and we participate in several working groups and task forces. Read more about our partnerships with the Alliance for Biomedical Research, the European Cancer Organisation, the European Medicines Agency, and ENDO-ERN.

After two successful events in 2022 and 2023, European Hormone Day will be back on 24 April 2024. This event brings together the endocrine community to raise awareness of the importance of good hormone health – #BecauseHormonesMatter!
The European Society of Endocrinology is at the centre of Europe's endocrine community. We unite, support and represent our specialty, promoting collaboration and best practice, and enable our community to develop and share the best knowledge in endocrine science and medicine.
